The 2015 Subaru Outback crossover is an all-new updated version of this 20-year-old classic. Over the years, Subaru has refined most of the Outback’s minor inconveniences. Subaru made some considerable changes to the car’s exterior, toning down a lot of the aggressive SUV styling from the outgoing model. Autobytel’s Road Test Editor, Chris Wardlaw, tested a 2015 Outback 2.5i Limited model, which is equipped with Subaru’s 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. Prices for the base model start at $24,895 and can go up to $32,996 for the 6-cylinder 3.6R Outback Limited. The sticker price on Autobytel’s test car came in at just over $34,000. As tested, the 2015 Subaru Outback Limited’s powerplant produces 175 horsepower and is paired to a CVT gearbox with six preprogrammed transmission settings and paddle shifters. However, the 2.5-liter engine makes the Outback feel underpowered. This engine and transmission combination has been given fuel economy ratings of 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, but Autobytel’s test didn’t replicate those results. Over 500 miles, Chris got an average of just 23.7 miles per gallon. The new 2015 Subaru Outback offers updated features, a roomy interior, generous cargo space, and an excellent touchscreen infotainment system, but the 2.5-liter engine and its substandard fuel economy are this car’s only real issues.
